UK: AHDB’s Potatoes and Cereals Knowledge Exchange teams join forces

The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) has taken a significant step to improve its offering and better support farm businesses in the arable sector. AHDB’s Cereals and Oilseeds and its Potatoes Knowledge Exchange (KE) Teams will unite this month to create a single Arable Team – bringing together a wider range of expertise for the industry. As a result, four new roles have been created, taking the headcount in arable knowledge exchange from 20 to 24. Rob Clayton, AHDB Strategy Director for Potatoes, said: “Our Knowledge Exchange Teams exist to help farming business in the UK to become more profitable and resilient. This can be achieved by adopting the latest technical and scientific advances and good growing and production practices. Our analysis to date points to a relatively positive post-Brexit picture for potatoes. But taking advantage of this depends on strong links between researchers, agronomists and growers.” More
